there's a direct lineage between magical practice and the operation of technoindustrial society as we know it. capitalism is an ecology of egregores

There should be no buttons on tweets. Each tweet should itself be a button, and when you click it should immediately like, retweet, and open the reply box

I have some friends who are future oriented and into space, AI, etc. but they've bought into the academic/activist left worldview and it clearly causes them a great deal of cognitive dissonance You know they're not going to stop with Elon right? nobody gets to leave this planet

there are good ideas that come from the left! and good values. but the current alliance of authoritarians, degrowthers, and dogpiling conformists is a death sentence for the species

This is true. I have bought into this before, the it"plutocratic exit strategy worldview. but it's not true. The more you try to build a habitat off this planet, the more you know How amazing and precarious the biosphere is. https://t.co/Y3S3ofACYn

We wouldn't even know about climate change if it weren't for the space program! And we're not going to thinks a problem this big without a great deal more science and technology! The humanities are not going to save us!!

The lack of a communal noun for non-binary people seems to have led to "folks" being the common terminology? not ideal

I think people underestimate the political realignment coming. The context collapse of the internet causes everyone to frantically seek in group/out group boundaries, and portray the outgroup as unclean. So far this has happened a long nominally left/right lines, but not for long

stem player thread

the stem player is a rock. it feels like a knapping stone in my hand. it dropped in an opaque way, and people have built a cargo cult around it it is very cool. still limited, but it feels liek the first new instrument since the synth

like, DAWs take all the musical constructs of the 20th century and package them up into software. But the stem player packages up some of those same effects into a new physical mnemonic

20:23:13

when i said cargo cult i meant only that it comes with few instructions, and people have built a reddit and a discord and a wiki and youtube explainers and a google drive full of stems &c&c&c

that's the stem player community wiki. it is 17 pages long. the first 3 pages are scan of the original comic-style manual, which is very cool and opaque. it is a little frustrating that i had to do internet archaeology to find it, so i'm linking it here for my future self

🗨️ 1 ♺ 0 🤍 7


20:35:35

the wiki is written by an earnest group of (gamers / teenagers)? who are reverse engineering the stem player's internal state. it is helpful. however as a coder i think, i should automate this. and then open source a library. it is not as hard as they're making it sound https://t.co/QTx2quFWuK

of course, i understand that updates will come, that's the advantage of software, ship the MVP, Kanye patches his albums, blah blah blah. there should be, and will eventually be, a universal interface to the musical potato device. if not by the makers, then by the hackers

and yes tbc the stem player website allows some file management. as well as the stemming itself, which is awesome! I just am in the very tiny minority of users who already have spleeter installed on my GPU machine, so I want to treat it as a filesystem https://t.co/SebYOrBwvW
